Anybody good at distinguishing Crestie "morphs"?

    I've gotten some better pictures of Jasper but am having a hard time trying to decide if she is an extreme harlequin or a brindle. I do know that the coloration on her dorsal area is noticeably different than it is on her sides. My thoughts are leaning toward extreme harley.

    She is not fully fired up in these shots and she is not as yellow as they look. Reds just wash out really badly with flash photography. The bottom shot is probably the closest to her actual colors. She is young enough that she has certainly not settled into her final coloration and may be still showing some hatchling red.

    Anybody want to voice an opinion? image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    It's difficult to tell, but I'm leaning towards brindle.

    I would say tiger or flame.

    Because I moved Jasper into a kritter keeper while I update her real home I was able to get some better pictures of her.

    I was quite surprised that her portholes are only two or three scales. I wonder if they will get larger or fade away as she grows.

    Her structure could be better (her crests sort of peter out into collections of enlarged scales just past her shoulders and her head is a touch narrow), but considering she was a Petco purchase that is not surprising. But ideal conformation or not I think she is lovely and look forward to a long time with her.
